4.4/5 rDev +10%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Opaque black with a thin tan head.
Aroma: Roasty malts with a piney hop profile.
Taste: Very malty! Resinous hop flavor but not crazy on the bitterness. Nice roasted aftertaste. Overall a very bright flavor for a dark beer.
Mouthfeel: So smooth. Above average drinkability and robust.
Final Thoughts: Great beer from a new brewery. A flagship American Black Ale is just what this Pale Ale, IPA and Wheat Beer saturated market needs! Will be buying this when it's available at in liquor stores.
Serving type: on-tap

12oz can poured into a nonic pint. Canned on 2/7/14
A - Opaque black with a creamy brown head. Strong on lacing.
S - Prickly pine hops. Very wet/bright smell. Gentle sweet chocolate, plenty of malt. More roasty as it warmed.
T - Initial flavor is from the citrus hops. The hops stick around but then the caramel malts start to meld-in toward the back half. Finishes with some pleasant pine hops and solid bitterness.
M - Medium to medium-light body, light carbonation, semi-dry.
O - There is a unique relationship between hops and malt. Instead of showing some hop flavor and aroma at one time and malt flavor and aroma at another, they seemed to all be at once and hard to decipher them separately. Body seemed to be deceiving to its ABV. Smell favored malt and taste favored hops.
Recommendation - Since the brewery was so packed I couldn't get in, I was glad to bring this home and recommend you do as well.

---from can to pint glass---
Totally black – no light is allowed through, huge fluffy head – 2 fingers worth, lots of floating sediment, great head retention with great lacing… this beer is just about perfect. No, wait, it’s perfect.
Dark roasted malts and pine. Little chocolate aroma comes through
Dark chocolate and fresh coffee, piney aftertaste
Borders on heavy body, great lingering bitter chocolate, just sweet enough.
Whoa! I underestimated this beer! The hops and malt dance in perfect harmony here. Try this beer, please.

this is how i like my black ales. big, bold, and hopped to high heaven. the can pours a matte dark brown color with a robust inch of tan head and leaves glorious ring lacing as it drinks, never losing its layer of froth. the nose is bitter hops and darkly roasted barley, a double dose of bitter that transfers well to the taste. layers of chocolate malt weave with layers of piney hops, an enjoyable back and forth as i sip. clean finishing with just bitterness left behind. it drinks full bodied and smooth like a big american porter, and is carbonated just right for it to be both lively and smooth at the same time. a very enjoyable beverage, my first from indeed.
